We are naturally disappointed to be losing our richest jumps fixture

Musselburgh Racecourse general manager, Bill Farnsworth, said: “We are naturally disappointed at losing our richest jumps racing fixture this weekend (Sunday 10 Feb) but the racing community is working together to minimise the spread of equine influenza and the decision by the BHA to cancel racing is without doubt the correct one."

“The industry does prepare for scenarios such as these and I am confident that the stringent procedures which are in place across the UK will ensure that racing is back and up running as soon as it is safe to do so.

“A decision will be taken on Monday by the BHA as to when racing will resume, and if our next meting scheduled for Wednesday (13 Feb) goes ahead as planned, there will be free admission for all.”
